Programming the Control Panel
The 6270 will not be fully operational unless its address in the control
panel has been enabled for an alpha console, AUI type device, and
assigned to a partition (where applicable). Refer to “Compatibility” on
page 1–2 of this document for the quantity of 6270s that may be used
and the required control panel software revision level.
On residential control panels (VISTA-20PS or equivalent), two
6270s may be used (addresses 1 and 2). These addresses (in field
*189) are enabled by default. If the defaults have been changed,
enable these addresses (in field *189) using an alpha-keypad and the
Data Field Programming procedures located in the panel Installation
and Setup Guide.
On commercial control panels (VISTA-128BP, VISTA-128FBP,
or equivalent), addresses between 1 through 30 may be used for the
6270. These addresses in the control panel are normally not defaulted
for AUI type devices. To enable the addresses you will be using for
6270s, use an alpha-keypad and follow the procedures for “Device
Programming” in your control panel “Programming Guide.”

plans and specifications and to be free from defects in materials and workmanship under
normal use and service for 24 months from the date stamp control on the product(s) or, for
product(s) not having an ADEMCO date stamp, for 12 months from date of original
purchase unless the installation instructions or catalog sets forth a shorter period, in which
case the shorter period shall apply. Seller's obligation shall be limited to repairing or
replacing, at its option, free of charge for materials or labor, any product(s) which is proved
not in compliance with Seller's specifications or proves defective in materials or
workmanship under normal use and service. Seller shall have no obligation under this
Limited Warranty or otherwise if the product(s) is altered or improperly repaired or serviced
by anyone other than ADEMCO factory service. For warranty service, return product(s)

circumvented; that the product(s) will prevent any personal injury or property loss by
